BC football ends season with win over Miami

Chase Rettig threw two touchdown passes to Chris Pantale and Boston College closed out the season on a high note, with a 24-17 road victory over Miami Friday afternoon.

Pantale's second TD, a 32-yarder with 12:08 left in the third quarter, put BC (4-8, 3-5 ACC) ahead for good. Miami (6-6, 3-5) drew within seven points on a Jake Wieclaw field goal with 14 seconds remaining in the game, but the ensuing onside kick went out of bounds.

In the same game in which he set the school record for caeer tackles, BC linebacker Luke Keuchley returned an interception for a touchdown. It was one of four BC picks of Jacory Harris, who had thrown five interceptions all season. Keuchly also set a single-season ACC record for tackles, breaking his own record of 183 from last year.

During the game, Miami announced a four-year contract extension for coach Al Golden, taking him through Feb. 1, 2020. Golden had been rumored to be a candidate for some high-profile...

B's streak ends as Wings win shootout
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins' winning streak was halted at 10 games by the Red Wings Friday, as the B's fell to Detroit, 3-2, in a matinee decided by a shootout. 

Todd Bertuzzi scored in the third round of the shootout to give the Red Wings the win after the Red Wings and Bruins had gotten goals from Pavel Datsyuk and Nathan Horton, respectively. 

Though the Bruins dominated early, Valtteri Filppula gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead on a give-and-go with Henrik Zetterberg. Daniel Paille tied it in the second period, but Pavel Datsyuk answered back when he beat Tuukka Rask 35 seconds later to give Detroit the lead back. 

Patrice Bergeron tied the game once again for the Bruins in the third period when he picked Zetterberg's pocket in front and beat Jimmy Howard with a powerful wrist shot to knot the game at two.

The Bruins will return to action Saturday, when they host the Jets for the first time since the Thrashers' relocation.

Report: Vick out for Sunday

According to a report from Albert Breer of NFL Network, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will almost certainly miss Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. Vick broke multiple ribs in Week 10 vs. the Cardinals and did not play in last Sunday's win over the Giants.

"Every indication is Eagles QB Mike Vick will miss his second straight game on Sunday, according to league source," Breer posted on Twitter Friday afternoon. "Those I've talked to would be shocked if Vick goes. So count on Vince Young starting against the Patriots."

Young started in the win over the Giants but struggled, throwing three interceptions.

Belichick: 'Have to be careful' around Asante

FOXBORO -- Speaking prior to the Patriots' Friday practice at Gillette Stadium, head coach Bill Belichick talked about what awaits his team when going up against former Patriot Asante Samuel.

"I think we know you have to be careful throwing around him," said Belichick of the 30-year-old cornerback. "He's very instinctive, he's got good balls skills, he's got quickness. You just have to be careful. Tom [Brady] has thrown against him hundreds of times. I think he has a good feel for what it's like to play against him."

In 10 games this season, Samuel has two interceptions. He totaled nine and seven in each of the past two years, respectively.

"Asante has really good ball skills. He's a ball hawk in the secondary," Belichick said. "He has a great feel for the passing game. He has good hands. Has made some some big plays, like we've seen him for many years."

Sunday's meeting between the teams is the...

Mashup: Suh denies stomp was intentional

Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh continues to deny he's a dirty player even as he does things to get ejected, as he did Thursday when he stomped on the arm of Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith after pushing his head into the ground.

"What I did was remove myself from the situation the best way that I felt in me being held down in the situation that I was in," Suh explained following the Lions' 27-15 loss. "My intentions were not to kick anybody, as I did not. [I was] removing myself, as you see, I'm walking away from the situation. And with that I apologize to my teammates, and my fans and my coaches for putting myself to be in position to be misinterpreted and taken out of the game."

Suh refused to apologize for his actions, sticking with the "misinterpreted" excuse.

"I was on top of a guy being pulled down and trying to get up off the ground, which is why you see me pushing his...
